how Obama learned to stop worrying

Uncanny watching Dr. Strangelove in 2011, while we wait for Obama to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline and unleash the doomsday device.  If we made it through the Cold War, we can now end the world at a slower pace, without the psychic interruption of a nuclear attack but flipping stations between floods, wildfires, and real housewives.  Mr. President doesn’t want to go down in history as a mass murderer (wouldn’t that be uncomfortable!)  He’ll maybe regret the necessities he creates, while Dr. Strangelove suppresses his thrill at the eugenic potential and Michele Bachmann celebrates God’s wrath.
